Lees Ferry

While my ace support crew backpacked the Grand Canyon, I established my basecamp in Flagstaff and planned to undertake a series of nearby day rides before our Sunday rendezvous. On Thursday I explored red rock trails near Sedona.

Due to a cold, rainy forecast for Friday in Flagstaff, I drove a couple of hours north in order to spend the day riding in a warmer, drier climate. I visited Navajo Bridge, left the car there, and pedaled along the Vermilion Cliffs on Lees Ferry Road, not sure what I’d find.

      Grand Canyon, I am told, was a memorable success. Everyone experienced an enjoyable expedition despite a treacherous descent on a steep, unmaintained trail described as “terrifying.” All emerged safely. Ace support crew simultaneously trying to recover and pondering her next death-defying excursion.

    Yep, that is some spectacular country. One of my geology life list items is to raft the Grand Canyon on a trip that is specific to geology interpretation. I always envisioned I would cycle to the start of the ride… and yes, your pics confirm that desire.

      Today’s “Colorado River” post might give you more ideas about rafting through the GC. Not sure if any of these trips were geology-specific. I did, however, see an advertisement for another rafting expedition that purported to demonstrate how the geology of the Grand Canyon proved the accuracy of the Bible.
